As a novice potter, four weeks into a once-a-week course, I was looking for a 'bible' which would introduce me to all the basics. This has exceeded expectation, with detailed 'how to' guides for all the different pottery techniques, great photos and inspirational ideas. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
This book is fantastic! It is a compendium of in depth knowledge of the subject with hundreds of wonderful pictures that inform and inspire. Covering all aspects of the medium from the very traditional to bang up to date new techniques and innovations, this is a must have book for anybody interested or working in the field of ceramics.
I borrowed this book from library and I loved it so much that I had to buy it. I am a beginner in ceramics and this book is very well written with great tips and great explanations about different types of clay, making techniques and glazing, together with absolutely fantastic tips of how to photograph my work, develop a website and market my business. I highly recommend this book to any beginner in ceramics!
This book is brilliant. I havent done ceramics for 20 years proffessionaly and now Im an art technician at a school so I got one to revise the ceramics stuff for the kiln room and its perfect - loads of really well written, step by step information , all the information you need about kilns and firing types, lots of creative ideas and tips and its brought al the knowledge back that i thought id have lost! Perfect thankyou! buy this book as a workshop bible :)
This is an excellent ceramics guide. Well illustrated and is full of useful information. I like it as it covers all aspects of ceramics and is useful for beginners and the more advanced. Would recommend.
I have been doing pottery for some years and my brother in law has decided to take it up. I wanted a book that takes one through the ceramics processes from start to finish and this book met all the criteria. The illustrations are brilliant and the instuction is spot on. My brother in law thinks it's great and starts lessons soon.
